Papertrey Ink's January Blog Hop 2012


This is the first Papertrey Ink Blog Hop of the year and Nicole has a fab challenge for us all.

This month, in honor of the New Year, we are challenging you to pick your favorite project from 2011 and share it with all of us. To take it a step further, you are challenged to create a second card that is inspired by the favorite project you select. Your new version of an old favorite could carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets. We look forward to seeing your best creations from 2011, as well as your first projects from 2012!


I made this card for one of my Christmas cards and loved how it came out and as soon as I read the blog hop write up I just knew I had to pick this card to recreate!

 

I did a birthday one using the colours from CC358 to use Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette and Rose Red. I won't list all the stamp sets I used for the birthday sentiments, but I think there was about 12 different sets altogether! I embossed over the sentiments panel with the daisies pattern folder from Cuttlebug and added a little pink present from Make A Wish on the side.


And then I did a thank you one as well, using my fave new colour combo - Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores and Smokey Shadow. I just loved these colours together and the felt flower on the side is just so cute!


Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoy all the other blog hop cards. I know I will!
